Friend in Need: Loving Cat Leaps to Rescue Four-Year-Old from Biting Dog

00 feisty cat. 15.05.14


During a bike ride, a faithful house cat saved her four-year-old master as a dog leapt at him, bit him, and pulled him off the bike. On Tuesday, Jeremy Triantafilo was enjoying himself in the drive of his California home when the dog attacked him, causing pussycat Tara to rush to the rescue, hurl herself at the dog, and chase it away in a short while. The video, posted on CCTV, went immediately viral, drawing attention of over five million YouTube viewers. In an interview with ABC News, the boy and his parents told a touching story of incredible affection between the cat and the boy ever since he was a toddler, as Tara even used to squeeze into his crib to comfortably nestle down under the boy’s blanket. Tara appeared to have followed the family home from the park five years ago and has lived with them ever since.
